The Southern Rhône Valley continues to be one of the best places in the world to find great value red wines. While Côtes du Rhône wines are often made from similar blends of varieties, each wine still offers a unique profile of the region’s terroir.
Coste Chaude has been around since 1969 and now belongs to Vincent Tramier, who in 2018 purchased this 37-hectares property from Swiss ex-pats. The estate has been certified organic since 2014, and Vincent is on a path to achieve biodynamic certification within the next couple of years.
This estate is located on the plateau of the Southern Rhône, in the town of Visan, where 23 out of 37 hectares of land are planted with vines at 360 meters (1,181 feet) above sea level. There is a mix of soil types (yellow archer, brown marls, pebbles and stones over a base of limestone), and the climate is a bit cooler compared with the valley. Vincent uses these characteristics to his advantage, producing wines that are fresh are floral style, as well as juicy and approachable.
The 2019 “Cuvée Florilège” is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, all destemmed. The grapes are macerated for 15 days, and the wine spends 8 months in stainless steel.
We love this medium-bodied wine for its bright red and dark berry fruit, notes of pepper and garrigue, and well-balanced finished. This is a great wine to pair with lamb dishes and savory stews.
